You really don’t want to be redecorating every month, so it’s so important to pick a style that you’ll still love in a year or so. Not to mention picking products that will last as long as your love. So don’t stress, take a few moments to really think about your style and the look you want, using these tips to help you out.
Don’t back yourself into a corner with no way out. By this we mean, don’t go into overdrive and decorate the entire house without giving yourself time to reflect on your design choices. This could mean just decorating one room to start with or even just changing a few choice pieces of furniture. This way you’ll save yourself time and effort if you decide it really isn’t for you.
Magazines and online imagery can be overwhelming. Having too many great options can leave us more confused than before. But don’t despair and don’t throw away these amazing assets, they can be useful just used in the right way. Pinterest is especially inspiring when it comes to home decoration. Even when it comes to choosing the simplest thing as the right colour, the range of ideas on this one site alone can fuel your ideas. Check out Dulux Decorator Centre’s Pinterest board for new, exciting colours and ideas each week.
To really find a style that works for you, you need to pinpoint exactly what you don’t like about your current decoration and what you want to achieve through a new look. Maybe it’s too dull, uninviting or even garish. Make a list of not only what you want to change but why and use these to figure out how you’ll make the right choices.
Do a mini-makeover
Visualising your room is hard. What looks fantastic in that chic studio loft on Pinterest, may not suit your cosy family living room. Luckily there’s a way to combat this though. Using the wonders of technology and Dulux Decorator Centre you can see your newly decorated room right in front of your eyes without even lifting a paintbrush. This is all done through the Dulux Decorator Centre Visualiser App. Simply download the app to your mobile or tablet and use the camera to decorate your room in any colour or shade that takes your fancy.
Regretting your decoration choices can be the worst feeling. Not only have you put in time and effort to creating the look, but then if it’s not right you quite literally have to live with it every day. So regret no more, just make smart and beautiful design decisions.
